Subject: Not from Naks
This is from my master. Senn 441s into a D6 into another D6 (mine) from in front of the SBD. Sorry about the Drums, back in the day too many of us had this policy of no drums on the B side. Dumb, I know, but it was what it was when it was.

I think this is the best of the three AUD sources here. Decent tape of a "mehhh" show. One of these days if I can locate the tapes and find someone with a decent Nak, perhaps I'll get it uploaded here directly off the master.

Subject: Nice Mellow Show
We caught this after the Madison show which was a foot stomping, smoking HOT show. St. Paul was a nice mellow night, a bit more laid back than the night before. Then onward to Poplar, which were just incredible.

This show is not the best on tape, but it is still one of my all time favorite Jack Straw. It's hard to explain this, but the jam just sounds like the Dead machine churning. I love Phil's bass pops at the end too. The rest of the show is so-so.

Subject: Perception is everything...
Karen (RIP) dragged me to this show saying, as I recall, "you've got to see these guys, you simply won't believe it!" The following year I left for Asia and didn't return until '96. This was the first of the dozen or so shows I saw in that brief year that recast forever my expectations from music, having never found their musical equal. I was too new to know any better and completely melted at this show. I still remember being almost unable to speak the remainder of the night, echoing the observation that- even on an 'off 'night (by other reveiwer's standards)- "there is nothing like a Grateful Dead concert."

Subject: too much blow baby, but....
One of the worst TouchOfGrey's ever. Jerry must've done too much of something to open the second set because once he reaches the bridge, he starts singing the 3rd verse before the bridge is complete. From this point on, his vocals are a train wreck as he can't remember the sequence of words to the song. The band follows, thinking, is it I Will Survive or We Will Survive? I feel bad for Jerr, it's a terrible brainf*ck for an opener. UJB cuts// in after Women and is cut before the// Jam(d2-trk6). But here's the bright side:(1)an excellent audience recording!
Intsruments & vocals are well balanced with tight bass.(2)Outstanding infantile TStones, what a groove! Very, very strong last half of second set, which was to become rare. Good ole GD, good stuff,get it!

Subject: Gotta love the Summer 83
mid-west run. Each stop after PA was hot. The Madison shows were hot then St Paul shows and the real hot spot was Poplar Creek, Il. Smokin end of Tour shows.
Reviewer: capn doubledose - - July 29, 2005
Subject: Not the strongest
I went to a half dozen or so shows from this tour and Harrisburg and this are the weakest. Big RR Blues is great, but Jerry and Bobby sound wacked... Women>UJB and the jam are nice but they have lost the crowd already...GTRFB and One more Sat redeem it but not enough.
